    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Ya, know, now I kinda want a story of how Timothy Laurence gets along with Edward. Are they BFFs bonding over how far down in the pecking order they are. Or are they sworn enemies fighting for every little crumb of attention and privilege?

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Even if things are scheduled months in advance, and Andrew was written in as the person who would accompany the Queen to this event, it's just ridiculous to keep shoving him into things. he could have developed a "cold." That lingers for weeks. You have the polite fiction of why he is not in the public eye until things either go away or break really bad. We know he doesn't really have a cold, but if we aren't seeing him, we aren't constantly reminded of the allegations. Even the press (except the tabs and can't do anything about them) would go along with the polite fiction until something definite happens. If they break really bad - and there is a strong chance they do -- having him out and about like nothing happened only makes it worse. The Queen supposedly learned after the horrific backlash when she didn't immediately go to Buckingham Palace after Princess Diana's death. THAT was more understandable. She needed to be Granny right then to two boys who just lost their mother, not Queen for a nation who had lost someone who not even in the Royal Family any longer. This. This is just the Queen's blind spot for Andrew.
  3. Not always. In MD back support is only owed from the date of first filing for support. So if you wait until the kid is an adult, you are not getting child support. Now a case would not go 30 years here either. In most cases. Yeah that is a lot of time and money spent on a principle. "I know he is the dad and I am going to prove it if it costs me every cent." What else could she have done with that money? What else could she have accomplished with her time? Okay so biologically he is the father. Who really raised him? If this lady married, THAT is the child's father. He might not be as rich, but he was the father in the ways that really matter.

    Broncos open training camp THIS THURSDAY. The Falcons open on Monday. The other teams will follow. They get to go first because their first preseason game is the Hall of Fame Game on AUGUST 1. Woohoo, offseason is almost over.

    Nicole & Azan: Supersize My Tagine

    This has got to be a manufactured storyline. There is no way any sane person thinks NICOLE of all people can go to another country with their own traditions and sell homemade items. Also as others have said, this is not a way to make anything more than "pin" money. You aren't supporting yourself as this. The ones who support themselves sell patterns, have YouTube videos (used to be on cable access channels with shows) and travel the country teaching. That takes A LONG TIME to get to that point. I'm trying to get my quilt website up and running. Just to get the quilts out of the house. What I spend in fabric alone, if I sold a quilt I don't even make minimum wage on the labor. You can't charge what it really takes to make a quilt including labor and materials, nobody would buy it. Unless it is some really amazing arty quilt. I don't see Nicole having the skills to do that, let alone the drive to do the business side of it.

    Is Meghan coming back already from maternity leave? I would think a red carpet premier counts as an "official" engagement. going to Wimbledon to see your friend, even if you are in the Royal Box could be seen as personal. The Trooping of the Colour is personal as its the Queen's Birthday. But I would think a red carpet movie premier in support of your husband's charity would be "official." I hope she takes as much time off from official duties as she wants. There's a lifetime of Royal duties ahead for her.

    Nicole & Azan: Supersize My Tagine

    Oh he wanted to be in the US. Once he got citizenship, he can bring the rest of the family over. It's not a long or easy process, but its pretty much how its done. He was always going to scam her for money too. That's why he picked a vulnerable woman who would fall for any line. He got the money sent to him, plus eventually the ticket to America. Nicole was not the only fish he was dangling the bait to. She just bit the hardest. Then he met her in person and just could not go through with it. He is still stringing her along while fishing for someone else to get him that golden ticket to the Promised Land. The money helps him in Morocco while he doesn't work so he has time to fish for other suckers.

    Because that's how you pay the bills to care for your family. You want to be with them through the tough times, but you know you also have to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. At least Sig can turn the boat over to He Who Shall Not Be Seen. That's gotta help some to have his daughter and his brothers on the boat. It's not just him alone, he does have family.

    Dammit Disco i said i never wanted too see Sig cry again. Oh my heart broke for Sig. Then the shot of Mandy just sitting there. I really hope Mrs. Sig is all right.
  11. Its not just a thing its the law. Also tabloids arent just publishing photos they are reporting which is one of the exceptions in the law. That is vastly different from using a celebrity image without permission to promote clothes. Commercial speech is different than reporting and can be regulated.
  12. Ashley can be wrong for going to Jamaica and hooking up with an underage boy (I'm a strong advocate of the age of consent should be 18 everywhere), then using the system to abuse him. Jay can be wrong for cheating on her, working under the table and now exploiting the gullible on GFM. TLC can be REALLY WRONG for putting these 2 on our tv. There is nothing "likable" or "entertaining" about either one.
  13. SUUUURE Andrew, these young girls just liked hanging out with all these adults. How thick do you have to be that your mommy has to tell you to stop hanging out with a CONVICTED pedophile. this statement from the prosecutors says it all: Federal prosecutors recently filed court papers in Florida case contending Epstein’s deal must stand. “The past cannot be undone; the government committed itself to the NPA, and the parties have not disputed that Epstein complied with its provisions,” prosecutors wrote in the filing. They acknowledged, however, that the failure to consult victims “fell short of the government’s dedication to serve victims to the best of its ability” and that prosecutors “should have communicated with the victims in a straightforward and transparent way." Usually the prosecutors are fighting tooth and nail to keep someone who has been exonerated IN jail, not fighting to keep someone who IS guilty out. Wonder what COULD BE the difference?
  14. Prince Andrew has to be freaking out. Hes been known as a friend of Epstein but claims he didnt know about the rape of minors.
  15. You can't use someone's image without their permission. Right of Publicity is very real. Hate to say it but Kimmy is in the right on this one. You can't just go use celebrity pictures because it gets your stuff more attention than if you used stock photos. Even stock photos you have to pay for. This was a site trying to cheap out on their website, didn't want to pay but did want attention. I mean who does it hurt right? Except well, the person who's picture they used gets to say how that picture is used, not some random website.
